Tax day will be upon us soon. Winter has not released it's grip completely. The ground is still frozen in places and there is still some snow in the woods. Winter was somewhat mild we never had "too much" snow and yet, we never seemed to have enough. Anyways, that's all behind us and so is a whole bunch of canoes since the last update. This seems to be the year of Atlanta. We have had the Dunnagan boats (7-8), another gentleman from Atlanta has sent us four Old Town Otcas' also from Roswell, Ga. is a man who has sent us 5 canoes. We recently had a restoration class with a man and his son, Dave and Andrew, Westerman.
What projects would you like to see going on? Bending on ribs?, other steam bending projects?, canvassing?, any aspects of restoration?, etc. Contact us and we'll see what we can come up with.

Dave Westerman and his son Andrew worked on restoring an old B.N. Morris canoe. Here Dave is drilling the pockets for the rib tops in the bottom of the pre-bent inwale.
With the new inwales installed, ribs and planking were next replaced. The hull was tightened up sanded in and out and canvassed and filled. They will finish it back home.
